After they got off the road in support of their debut album, Yoncalla, the New Zealand quartet Yumi Zouma headed home to recuperate and start work on another album. The home cooking and familiar spaces led the band to make something much more intimate and 2017's Willowbank is less of a record for sunny day frolics and more of one for a cuddle and a restorative stroll through dusky streets. With songs that never work up a sweat and melodies that caress jangled nerves, the band has crafted chillout music of the best kind. It's relaxing and warm, but never drowsy or boring. Christie Simpson's vocals have grown more assertive and strong, but she still sings with the tune instead of leaping out in front. The band holds back too, mixing clouds of synths with jangling guitars, bubbly bass, and gently propulsive drums. It's a homey, bedroom-made spin on the electropop of their debut, which was already a low-impact version of the sound that took over radio waves in the mid-2010s. It's like New Order were college kids who grew up on a tiny verdant island, or Chvrches cut all the drama out of their sound. Despite any cute comparisons like that, Yumi Zouma have their own thing going on here, and when they put 100% effort into a track, it sounds like a rainy-day hit. Check the super-catchy and sweet "Persephone" or the loping "Us, Together," which matches stripped-down, bass-heavy verses with lush melancholy choruses, for proof of their pop bona fides. The jittery "In Blue" is another gentle track that would fit almost any playlist, while "A Memory" pulses like a classic Everything But the Girl club track. When Yumi Zouma dial it all the way down, it's a little less immediate, but songs like the acoustic guitar ballad "Gabriel" show they don't need beats or electronics to craft memorable moments. The only time they stumble is when they get a little heavy, like on "Half Hour," where some of the musical choices overpower Simpson's tender vocals. It's a minor quibble that's easy to overlook, and it doesn't make the album any less enjoyable overall. It's another unassuming pleasure from a sneaky-good band, with just enough of a twist to make it a fine follow-up to Yoncalla.

Lhasa, la stella indimenticabile

Con soli tre album in studio, un live e tre tournée internazionali, Lhasa de Sela ha lasciato una traccia unica nella storia della musica popolare contemporanea. La Llorona, The Living Road e Lhasa sono delle opere distinte e mature che rivelano un universo strano ma familiare, a metà strada tra il sogno e la realtà. Queste canzoni chiaro-scure sono caratterizzate da dei sentimenti sinceri di un’artista il cui canto a fior di pelle propone un patto di intima complicità con colui che l’ascolta. Nella vita di Lhasa de Sela vi sono tutti gli ingredienti di una leggenda, le tappe di un romanzo e le emozioni di una storia bella ed emozionante.

Obbiettivo la luna: The Dark Side Of The Moon

The Dark Side of the Moon, album-chiave dei Pink Floyd fu il risultato di un lungo processo creativo iniziato intorno al 1968. A Saucerful of Secrets (il brano principale dell'omonimo album) fu, almeno per Nick Mason, il punto di partenza. L'album successivo, Ummagumma (1969), diede a ciascun membro della band l'opportunità di creare un brano solista, anche se avrebbero dovuto unire i loro talenti per fare davvero il jackpot. I Pink Floyd hanno continuato a cercare il disco perfetto con Meddle, un album che ha messo in evidenza le loro abilità in studio, e Atom Heart Mother, prima del tanto atteso nirvana con The Dark Side of the Moon. E la perfezione di quest'opera non è stata intaccata nel tempo, nemmeno a quarantacinque anni dalla sua uscita.

Marc Ribot, l'antieroe della chitarra

Per 35 anni, il nome di Marc Ribot è apparso sulle copertine di album firmati da Tom Waits, Vinicio Capossela, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso e una miriade di altri musicisti. E quando non presta la sua atipica chitarra ai più grandi, il newyorkese si diverte a smontare rock, jazz, funk, musica cubana e tutto ciò che gli capita a tiro.
